Orbeon Forms 4.0 M10

Today we released Orbeon Forms 4.0 M10 (Milestone 10). Like 4.0 M9 and the previous milestones this is not a final release.

We have addressed the following issues in this build:
  • Form Runner
    • Don't allow "dot" in app/form name in page flow
    • PDF template: support output of file metadata for file attachments
  • XForms engine
    • "Prefix for xxforms:separator is not declared" (#418)
    • Security improvements (see blog post)
      • More robust encryption
      • Use item position instead of encryption
      • Hash function configurable via properties
    • More fixes for "Namespace interference with xs:*" (#331)
    • Allow xxforms:get-request-path() to be used after XForms initialization
    • "Save request parameters and headers to the dynamic state" (#422)
    • "XHTML output: `Accept` header lost upon submission" (#424)
  • Other
    • Initial implementation of "Protect pages and services by default" (#75)
    • Email sending: global properties for username, password, encryption, and smtp-port
    • Orbeon Forms now builds on Oracle JDK 7
    • Upgrade Commons Lang library
    • Refactoring of HTTP connection code
More information is available in the in-progress release notes for 4.0.
